of st. john the baptist in this very expressive way. so different than the other kinds of clouds that we were just looking at. and this is a painting by a norwegian artist named doll and i liked it because we have a nighttime scene and so you think about seeing the clouds in the daytime or the rain clouds or competitions of clouds that are over beautiful land scapes but what do the clouds do in this picture, when we are looking at the moon through the view of the clouds? and this is a painting that is particularly close to my heart. it is mid victor an artist named john martin and this painting is his depiction of the aftermath of the great biblical floods and so the clouds and waters are parting and you can't see it in this slide reproduction but in the actual painting very far in the horizon line you have noah and the arc. but the way that the clouds almost start to take on a figural representation, it is like there is a movement of hope and promise coming in the sky and of course the skies have this long history of being associated with the heavens and mythology. and you can't talk ab

to be quiet. that's a quote by the white house. that's what former u.n. ambassador john bolton is talking about this morning. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal. they were not made available to congress or others finding out what happened dha. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a cover up. they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal terrorist groups were present in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of it is to allow these people to talk to members of congress to tell them what happened to them on the day of the attack and if they feel indim dated if they are being withheld from congress that is only going to continue. the question in other people's minds, is this a cover up, is it not. >> ranking member of the community a democrat is also talking saying everything is being done to find out the truth. >>> right now there's an investigation going on. what happened in benghazi is a terrible situation when americans loss the
